three hundred forty six days.

"if we take care of the moments, the years will take care of themselves."
-- maria edgeworth

today is emilia's birthday...in 1980 (a leap year) we were born 346 days apart...years later we met in college and the rest is, as they say, history. today we are living 3,185 miles apart (sadly) and since i can't be in california on her birthday i will send hugs and love over the miles...the package above is on it's way my love, i hope you have a wonderful birthday and that you had a fun extravaganza weekend with sweets & treats in the park. MWAH!

i'm back.

a friend of mine once told me about his sister, who had a professor that asked everyone in the class to announce their presence in and out of daydreams, distractions, etc. by saying outloud - in the middle of whatever was going on in class - "i'm back!" when their attention focused back on the task at hand...well,

i'm back!

no promises how long it will last:) but i'm here today. lots going on - i'm working lots of extra hours at the library (like double the usual on-top of my full-time job) and i got a new student at school that i'm working with one on one...so that has taken a minute to get used to, i am a nearly licensed foster parent with hopes (fingers crossed, please!) of adopting my little joe in the new year (sooner, if that's possible!), and what else...who knows! i recently went to NYC to visit my dear sera and our friend ashley was in town (opening up the hottest new thrift on the LES!) and ashley is soon to be married (enter wedding present ideas here:_________)

SO, besides all of that and the fact that we ate lobsters instead of turkey on thanksgiving (support local) i am boring and loving a few things (shared below) and hopefully by the holidays, i will have made a few things for my lovelies and the niece & nephew kidlets :) enjoy links and happy hump day!
